    They still had Absolutely no 9mm, .40, .45 acp, .357 (and other popular calibers) Whatsoever on their shelves. Thankfully I am prepared enough to survive about a months worth of Zombie Armageddon, but what about most other folks?
    When is this freaking 'ammo shortage' going to finally end !?
    Wherre is this ammo shortage you speak of ? I had not noticed it yet, Not sure what the issue is? If I feel like taking my son out to shoot we just go into the can labeled 22lr and blast away at soup cans and paper targets. But seriously what day did you go to Cabelas on I know around here if you go on the day they stock ylou can usually get just about any flavor needed just not in any large quanity. Really found it quite funny when the sales associate at Cabelas told the pawn shop owner he could not purchase 10 1600 round packages of mini mags. Seems like things are becoming available just not in mass supply. Good Luck

    I was lucky enough to get two boxes of 100 9mm winchester. Going to hold on to it like it was gold. Have a box of 100 40s and two boxes of 100 38s Just going to sit on them and see what happens!
    I will look towards the hills from whense cometh my help. All my help cometh from the Lord.

    I read an article the other day. They talked about DHS buying 1.6 trillion rnds. They also stated that set of civilian purchases, they estimated we have latched onto around 2.4 trillion. Real hard to stock shelves when everyone is buying bulk and stocking up for whatever.

    No problem getting hollow points, just target ammo. A local gun shop has all popular handgun calibers in target loads, except 9mm and .22lr and I picked up some .380, 40SW and .45ACP.

    I have enough self defense ammo to fill all the magazines I own for my home defense and carry guns twice over. Don't need any more than that. In fact, it's probably a life time supply of SD ammo.

    For practice, I reload. I have 700 rounds of 9mm and 550 rounds of .45ACP that I made in the last week sitting on the shelf in big plastic jars like red-neck jelly beans. I have components enough to make another 1,000 rounds of 9mm and 500 rounds of .380.

    I bought the components late last summer when they were plentiful and on sale. I figured, with the election coming, and Romney looking un-electable, it was going to get totally crazy. Cost me about $250.00 to lay in the stock of bullets, powder and primers for 2,500 rounds of ammo. I already had lots of brass (2,000 9mm, 1,000 .45ACP, lots of .380 and .357 as well).

    Meantime, I'm not spending any money anyplace on ammo. If there was ever a time to have an ammo factory at home, this is it.

    I need to assemble my groung hog ammo for the summer. That will take me a couple of pleasant afternoons.

    That said, right now, bullets are as hard to find as ammo. Glad I don't need any. I hope this cools down over the next year. I'll have shot all the practice ammo by this time next year.

    Yes MN is picked over in the metro. People have the trucking schedules down. Fleet farm in Brooklyn park got 250,000 rounds and gone in 4 hours. 50,000 the next week and same thing.
    I've ears northern MN has been in stock.

    I initially bought off armslist.com from fellow MN for $17 a box of 9mm when it was at its worse but not everyone wants $22-25 a box a 9mm and $14+ for a box of .223. I refuse to pay it!

    I've been dropping in cabelas regularly and mornings are where it's at they restock at 5am.

    Doesn't matter if we can find ammo here in CT, Almost all guns are illegal now anyway!

  9. Even when the few who do find the Ammo. they want, the price has been jacked up around twice the price it was before all this anti-firearm stuff got rolling. What I find crazy is the people still buying it at them high prices. They sure must be needing that high priced Ammo.

    The only ammo I have bought since the craziness started was a crate ( 880) of 7.62X54R. At a price of $198 delivered. Now I'm seeing it at a ridiculous price of $139 a half crate ( 440 ) plus shipping.
